Fourteen Years
They say you meet your soulmate by the time you're 21.

Premium Member Let Them Sing Their Love Songs
Let writers write their stories
And singers sing love songs
But we both know it, baby
They’ve got this “love” thing wrong

It’s deeper...Read More

Lean back, relax, unwind

Yet despite the knots and beaten planks
It was beckoning and quaint

For star crossed lovers

To escape the wombs embrace

Encompass baby's early fear's 
And formal tears 
In cotton blanket's...Read More

Where two star-crossed lovers would meet covered by night.
